Eight Highly Effective Eco-Friendly Beauty Products

Beauty products abound, but most of them are full of chemicals and non-renewable ingredients. It can be difficult to find something that isn’t a danger to the environment. The problem with choosing natural options is that they don’t always work as well as the chemical ones.


Anyone striving to live a greener life will want beauty products to match their lifestyle. After all, it’s the details in life that make the difference. However, you also want something that does what it says it will. Here are eight products that do their job while staying eco-friendly.

1. Tata Harper All Natural Resurfacing Mask

With a base of pink clay, the resurfacing mask really gets the job done. It combines orange blossom and white willow extracts with several other natural ingredients to remove dull, dead skin and give your face a brighter look. If you’re not sure you want to invest in a large container, consider getting one of the smaller versions to test. The large jar will last approximately three months if you use it the recommended twice a week.

2. Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick

Everyone has a blemish at some point in their lives. Don’t let it get out of hand or resort to chemicals. Burt’s Bees blemish stick uses just a handful of natural ingredients, including salicylic acid derived from willow bark and tea tree oil. Apply two or three times a day to emerging zits.
